    Foundation: MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation 

    If you feel more confident wearing a foundation, then finding a water-resistant one for the summer is a must. You can’t get much better than MAC’s Pro Longwear Foundation.

    Its water-repelling formula is transfer, sweat and humidity resistant.

    Better yet, its creamy, medium coverage formula actually hydrates your skin. It isn’t thick or heavy to wear either. Instead, it will give you a natural-looking tone.

    Eyeliner: Too Faced Better Than Sex Easy Glide Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

    When most of us think of waterproof makeup, we usually think of mascara. If you really want to keep your eye makeup from smudging though, you need a waterproof eyeliner too. My favourite? Too Faced’s Better Than Sex Liquid Eyeliner.

    Its felt tip end makes it really easy to apply, while its waterproof formula is smudge-proof.

    This eyeliner features an easy-to-use felt tip end that creates a precise and dramatic look. Let’s face it, we could all do with a little helping hand to achieve a flawless winged-eye!

    Mascara: NYX Professional Makeup Doll Eye Waterproof Mascara

    I couldn’t talk about the best waterproof makeup without mentioning NYX’s Makeup Doll Mascara. Not only does it make your lashes look longer and thicker, but its vitamin E-infused formula is sweat, humidity and water-resistant.

    Trust me, once applied, this mascara isn’t going anywhere!

    If you’re looking for an affordable, great quality waterproof mascara, it doesn’t get much better than this.

    Brow Gel: Maybelline Tattoo Brow Waterproof Gel

    If you’re on the hunt for a waterproof brow gel, Maybelline’s Tattoo Brow is undeniably one of the best waterproof makeup products out there. Not only does the colour last all day, but the gel is really easy to apply.

    Unlike eyebrow pencils, this tattoo gel doesn’t run at all. Instead, it creates a protective veil over your brows, sculpting lovely, natural-looking arches.

    Use the sculpting tip to fill in your brows, working from the top of your brows outwards. Then, blend the gel using the spoolie. Give it a few minutes to set (the longer, the better), and voilà, salon-worthy brows that last!

  5. Lipstick And Blush: Dr. PAWPAW Lip Balm

    Lipstick And Blush: Dr. PAWPAW Lip Balm

    While there are lots of waterproof and smudge-proof lipsticks out there, I actually think a lip stain works better for summer.

    I’m a big fan of Dr. PAWPAW’s lip balm. Its nourishing formula moisturises your lips while adding a touch of bold colour to your pout. You can even apply it to your cheeks for a dewy flush.

    Unlike blusher powders which have a tendency to flake or run when it gets humid, this creamy formula stays put, even in warmer weather.

    While the Hot Pink shade is always a winner for summer, the Outrageous Orange hue is a fabulous, vibrant option too. You can also opt for Rich Mocha if you’re looking for a nude colour.

    The Best Waterproof Makeup Remover: Garnier Skin Naturals 2-in-1 Eye Make-Up Remover

    I can’t recommend the best waterproof makeup products without mentioning my favourite waterproof makeup remover, Garnier’s Skin Natural 2-in-1 Eye Make-Up Remover.

    Light and refreshing, this makeup remover is soft on the skin and really efficient. It’s definitely a summer makeup staple!

    Though it’s oil-based (you really need an oil-based remover to lift waterproof makeup), it isn’t greasy or heavy. Instead, it’s gentle on the skin and removes waterproof mascara and eyeliner in just a couple of wipes.
